Greywater Liberation Day!

We’re celebrating by sharing California’s Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) new “Emergency Building Standards – Part 5” (PDF).

It’s 15 pages long, so it may take a while to open…

And we’re ready to help you start graywatering!  Working with a licensed plumber, we can help coordinate getting the water out of your house and into your garden.  The new code requires that outlets be covered by 2″ of mulch or gravel and that the water is sent either into a mulch basin (surrounding a fig or banana tree perhaps) or into an infiltration pit, where larger trees will send their roots to drink and any extra water can slowly filter down to our aquifer.  It’s a good thing!
